Brunch Life Wedding

The Nifty Noodle’s Bridal Shower

May 31, 2016

This is a very late bridal shower post, but I had to feature the hard work of my bridesmaids. These girls blew my mind with their thoughtfulness and creativity. It was a brunch/floral theme…how fitting for me. IMG_0618

Brunch Wedding

Bridesmaids Brunch

October 12, 2015

FullSizeRender (1)With the fiancé out of town, I decided to take advantage of an empty apartment and host a brunch for my bridesmaids. We had a fun time mingling, while getting some wedding logistics done. I kept the menu simple: a bacon, spinach quiche, home fries and banana chip bread. And of course it couldn’t be brunch without mimosas.

This past weekend helped me realize even more that I chose the right group of gals. I’m so grateful to have such an amazing bridal party. Plus, if the Nifty Noodle ever got big I know I’ll have a best production crew. I was starving by the time we took this A+ photo. I only took us about 20 minutes of staging and editing to get it right -_-IMG_4937We need to work on our selfie game.  Selfie sticks are a must at our next get together. FullSizeRender

Bacon Spinach Quiche 

1 pie crust (I used half the dough of from my pie crust recipe)

5 slices of bacon, diced

6 eggs

1 cup milk (I used 2%)

½ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

1/2 cup Chedder cheese, shredded

1/2 cup Swiss cheese, shredded

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

1/2 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed (feel free to use fresh spinach)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Roll out the pie dough to fit a 9 inch pie pan. Place the dough into the pan and poke holds into the dough using a fork. Bake the pie crust for 20 minutes.
  3. While the pie crust is baking, cook the bacon until crispy. Transfer onto a paper towel.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Add the cheeses, spinach and bacon into the egg mixture until well incorporated.
  5. Pour the egg mixture into the pie crust. Bake for 50 minutes.
